Like a Phoenix from the ashes…in our recent obituary for MTV Geek we noted that the NY Post’s Parallel Worlds site also seemed to be gone. And indeed, a NY Post website design claimed its young life. However, undeterred, editor Den Greenfield has teemed up with Asbury Park Comicon’s Cliff Galbraith for a NEW SITE, 13th Dimension.
Tweet I noticed this morning that they hadn’t updated and that, coupled with the recent editor search, sent my Heidi sense tingling and yes indeed, MTV Geek is no more. Friends and fellow geeks — We’re shutting up shop and heading to the great arcade in the sky. Our friends over at MTV News will […]
Tweet As you probably heard over the holiday, iFanboy is packing in its “day to day” operations, which seemed like a euphemistic way of saying they won’t be running a costly and unprofitable daily website any more. 2013 has been a reality check for several “blogs” — a few months ago Newsarama quietly ended its […]
Tweet You have to actually go to the site to experience it, but Matt Maxwell’s new tumblr INTRAPANEL includes giant close up macro lens photos of classic comics (as well as references to past “Future comics”) and is quite mesmerizing. The above image is only an excerpt–but it should be our new motto.
Tweet Blog@Newsarama is both a long-running site in itself and the remains of one (The Great Curve) and the father of another (Robot6) blog that will all be remembered when the million selling “History of Comic Book Blogs” is written. Of late Graeme McMillan had been the sole poster, and he’s actually moved on to […]
Tweet Official launch seems to be tomorrow, but in case you missed the bold-faced names, the NY Post seems to be launching its very own nerd/comics/gaming blog, called Parallel Worlds. The logo features the senseless yet thrilling image of Alexander Hamilton in a spacesuit. And if that’s how they roll, I’m on board. Thus far […]
Tweet Comics have always been a collaborative medium (though you can dispute the extent of contributors input and editing til the cows come home) but the internet has certainly opened up the concept, allowing it to be explored in new and different ways and making it much easier for artists to connect. Sweeping general statements […]
Ulp. I guess blogging is dead. Artist John Martz just announced he’s ending his art blog, Drawn which was one of the most influential art blogs of the last 10 years or so. Martz started it in 2005 linking to tons of creator websites, and art pieces over the years. But as he notes, 2013 is not 2005:
Tweet Ryan Humphrey posted this fantastic Simpson/Akira mash up comic on his tumblr last night and it’s been picking up a healthy number of notes since. The comic (which you can see below) is really striking, mainly, I think, because of those splashes of colour against that rich cream background, in the sense of drama and dynamism […]
TweetAt the risk of lowering the tone, I relay to you the news of Jane Mai’s Poop Nightmare: so bad it needed capitalization As someone who lives in an old Victorian house, I can say with the weight of experience that there’s nothing worse than burst pipes, leaky drainage and overflowing toilet: the water seeps everywhere […]
TweetOver the weekend someone on Tumblr got the great idea of satirizing anatomically unlikely, and overtly sexualized comic book covers by replacing the women with Hawkeye. As far as we can make it out started withthis post by artist Blue which remixed a Marvel cover on Saturday: By morning, it was a huge vast thing […]
Artist Tom Fowler has a new tumblr blog called D&D&D. That is all.
TweetKickstarter has become the go-to crowdfunding website for a variety of comic projects, whether they be furiously exciting or somewhat dubious. But up until now, the site has been fairly restrictive about who can or can’t set up a campaign on the site – namely, that Americans can, but people in the UK can’t. That’ll […]
